“I grew up watching Chelsea” - Bayern Munich star reveals he was a Blues supporter as a child


Bayern Munich star Alphonso Davies has revealed that he used to support Chelsea as a child in an interview with ESPN. The Canadian left-back was asked which English side he supports, to which the 21-year-old replied (via The Sun ):

"I mean... I grew up watching Chelsea.... so Chelsea."

Davies has flourished for Bayern Munich ever since he arrived at the Allianz Arena in 2019 from Major League Soccer side Vancouver for £9 million. The Canadian has made 115 appearances for Bayern, scoring 5 goals whilst providing 18 assists.

Interestingly, the Blues might be on the lookout for a new left-back, with question marks over the future of Marcos Alonso. Reports claim he is on the brink of joining Barcelona, leaving Thomas Tuchel's side in stark need of a replacement.

It is unlikely to be former Blues supporter Davies though, as he is a huge part of Bayern's defensive set-up at the Allianz Arena.

He will be joined in Julian Nagelsmann's side's defense next season by Dutch centre-back Matthijs de Ligt, who has joined from Juventus for £60.3 million.

A heart issue plagued Davies' campaign last time out with the condition meaning he missed 12 games for Bayern. The Canadian lifted his fourth Bundesliga title last season and at the age of just 21, many are touting him to become an all-time great left- back.
